MS Dhoni will don the gloves in the 2nd Twenty20 International against England on the eve of his 37th birthday in Cardiff where India will look to seize the series. Dhoni has been pivotal to Team India’s success even after giving up the captaincy having led India in a record number of matches. He will be a crucial aspect in this limited-overs leg of the England tour with his glove work given the home team batsmen struggle against wrist spinners.
Dhoni is well known for his lightning quick reactions and he stumped the exit of Jonny Bairstow and Joe Root in the first game on consecutive deliveries who were deceived by Kuldeep Yadav. With those two dismissals, Dhoni now holds the record for most number of stumpings in T20I cricket. The former Indian skipper will add one more record under his belt when he steps on to the field in Cardiff. This T20I game is Dhoni’s 500th game across the three formats in International cricket.
